African americans didn’t get to be pilots and got treated different. They also did get the same recognition after the wars. The Tuskegee Airmen fought against racism and prejudice in not only the Nazi army, but against their own armed forces to let African American pilot planes in wars.In WWII african americans were discriminated and treated unfair in the army. one big discrimination was blacks weren’t allowed to be pilots or fly an plane in the war. In 1917 African American men had volunteered to become aerial observers, but they were rejected due to the racial prejudice of the time. The Air Corps was soon flooded with applications from black men who qualified, despite extra restrictive requirements. It was a big importance because it make the army weaker cause of the disgrimagrate. Discrimination in the arm was a horrible thing it wasn’t just that they also did get recantion . It wasn’t just they couldn’t fly they also didn’t get the recognition of others. African americans did get the same recaniton as the other soldiers. Following the 1940 Selective Service Act, the enlisted strength of the Army usually was 10 percent black. By September 1944, the 701,678 black troops in the Army comprised 8.7 percent of the total (African Americans, World War II). Military policy did not allow blacks into combat units until 1944, thus accounting for the fact that little more than 50,000 black troops fought the enemy in combat. By the end of World War II, 294 Medals of Honor had been given to white american soldiers but not one was given to an african american. was very unfair to african americans didn’t get the recognition they deserve. The black soldiers in World War II were just as useful and helpful as the white soldiers.The successes of black activists ultimately encouraged a stronger push for racial equality in America. President Roosevelt’s actions served as the beginning to the Truman’s order to combined the military and its espousal of civil rights. The treatment and triumphs of black workers, voters, and soldiers radicalized a community that already was eager to end the last vestiges of racism. In this manner, World War II and the black responses to it paved the way for racial integration, the civil rights movement, and a wider debate on the nature of American citizenship. After, fighting in a war and coming back to yet another war african americans were not fighting anymore.The Tuskegee Airmen fought against racism and prejudice in not only the Nazi army, but against their own armed forces to let African American pilot planes in wars. It was unfair for african americans for many reasons in the military. In WWII discrimination african americans were and treated unfair in the army. It wasn’t just they couldn’t fly they also didn’t get the recognition of others. African americans did get the same recaniton as the other soldiers.
